There's 500 online challenges in Big Surf Island alone or is that the whole game?

Well I've gotten 100% completion on BSI, except for earning the Jansen P12 car, which completing 500 online challenges seems ridiculous. Still got a lot of achievements to earn. Man, getting the elite license is gonna take awhile.

I think I may hold out on this until I get a new tv in September. I've noticed that playing on a SD makes a lot of things fuzzy.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

So Bogues and I played this for a ridiculous long time last night. We spent 3 solid hours just ****ing around, trying to find the best spots for airtime. We did head to head drag races and tests. It was pretty crazy.

BTW Bogues, your combined airtime record: 11.37 (In case we try again)

Good times last night , we did some crazy ****. Those airtime attempts were awesome. I really can't remember a racing game that I could spend hours not even racing and still want more.
In other news I finished my last BSI achievement and did a few road rages to get my 500 takedowns ( got 44 on my first one)

I seriously can't wait to get back on if we round up all of us again. We need to do a few more marked men on the island.

That's exactly my problem with this game - I have almost zero progress in the achievments because I mostly just race around town without doing any of the events!

LOL! Just so you know, I took back Lipscomb Way shortly after you signed off. Good luck breaking that record. That was the most perfect run I had the whole night.

Just so you know, my objection isn't so much to you having the road rule so much as putting it on the road I have constantly horrifically wreck on every time I attempt to set a rule. So what was the final time? I think I left at 2.58 sec.

Congratulations! Looks like I'm dead last, which is disturbing because I'd say I put a good amount of effort into most of the rules.

Edit: Nevermind, that includes the city where I most definitely mailed in quite a few roads.

What car are you using anyway?

I think it was 2.4something. I was going to post my times but xbox live is down right now (service update).

I believe I pulled those stats from the Island tab which is separate from the city stats.

Finally, I found the correct tab. Cars only.



For some reason there's no place to find the City ones, the idiots.

From what I understand, I should be killing you then, and I'm not. I'll give the car a try tonight anyway.

Oh and if anyone hasn't realized the one street (Griffith?) is glitched and you can't get a time under 2 seconds (It won't save the new record).

Ok, here's what confuses me... As far as I know I have better times than K on every road on the island... so how can my total time be slower?

I finally got around to buying this game yesterday and I'm embarrassed that I didn't buy it sooner.

I think it'll be a long time before I'm playing online though since I'm not very good at the game.

Trust me, you don't need to be good to have fun.

I forget what time zone you're in, but we'll probably be on tonight. 'Course, you'll need the Island to join in the real fun.

Which car were you using for timed road rules? I'm assuming a car I haven't unlocked yet. Something faster than the Hawker?

The Nighthawk (The Legendary Car). As I understand its the second or third fastest car in the game (The Extreme Hot Rod is the fastest, but I don't like it, and it costs money).

Judging by the location listed under his username, I would guess his timezone would be EST.

Seriously dude, all you need is $20 for the game (brand new) + $10 for Big Surf Island = You getting vertical takedowns on Dakar.
(A vertical takedown is Burnout's version of teabagging)

Just do it! Do it!

Even if you just fork over the 20 and wait a little for BSI, i have some 35 hours already in the game and i hadven't really had it that long.
